Simple.

A surprising one/ Not the typical beef taste/ Try it for yourself

The end product is a creamy beef bone-based stock with smooth soft noodles. It has some sesame seeds in it, but it doesn’t overpower the overall mild flavour. For people who use beef flavours as their standard for instant noodles (my favourite go-to flavour is seafood, as you may have guessed from the sheer amount of seafood instant noodles I have reviewed.), this is not your standard beef flavour. It doesn’t taste remotely like bovril. Or beef stock. It is something entirely different.
It would be a fantastic meal if I felt like something mild, creamy and simple. The reason I rated this instant noodle highly but wouldn’t buy again is purely from my tastes in instant noodles. (I have some strange likes and dislikes.) It’s a good place to start if you like tonkotsu broth (pork bone-based stock, it’s another creamy silky rich broth.), because it has that silky mouthfeel you find in ramen shops. I would use this as the standard.
Nonetheless, it is a tasty instant noolde, and I would recommend it!
